Little Monsters

Hello and Happy Saturday Everybody!

Wow! What crazy hot weather we have today in OH, up to 90F. I guess I would rather be hot than cold. 🙂

Today I wanted to thank you the owner of My Favorite Things Company and her DT for featuring my card at their blog. You can’t  imagine how much it means to me. Lately, I felt so down about the cards I make. I applied to couple of DT without any success. And I understand this – so many amazing and incredibly talented crafters are out there, and to pick one is very-very hard. So when I saw a comment by Gabby on my blog where she told that I have been featured on MFT blog, I got so excited. It really powered up my MOJO and belief in myself. 🙂

You know how much I like to participate in PS Sparks challenge lately. This company helps me to improve on clean and simple cards. I don’t know how much of a progress I have done, but on this card I didn’t use any DP. Elena? No DP? A girl who can’t imagine a card without pretty papers.

Well, back to the challenge. This week it is a color challenge – cool shades. How cool is this! I tried to stay close to the color palette as much as I can. Little Fella set was inked up once again. Prismacolor pencils did their job on bringing up the colors. For the word squeal I used Party Posse stamp set and markers for stamping. Inside it is said: “It’s your birthday.”

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me your love. Hearing from you is a huge deal to me. 🙂

Hugs to all and fantastic weekend too,

    This is so adorable, Elena! I love the way you arranged those little fellas and the sentiment rocks the way you repeated it. I hear you about getting down on your creative self. I feel like that all the time. (I have dozens & dozens of unfinished cards, because of frozen mojo. As artistic types, our little voice inside our heads can be little meanies, hey?) Congrats on your well-deserved MFT feature. Your work is always amazing!
